Combined with his 50 years in the martial arts, executive bodyguard work for domestic and foreign dignatories, over 100 brutally violent arrest scenarios (where people ended up in the hospital or morgue) and unsanctioned pit-fighting on the docks of Newark and New Orleans, Perkins is a veteran of what works and what doesn’t in the field of self-defense.”

His book will prove of great value to clinicians, police administrators, and anyone concerned with learning about real trauma and its effect on law enforcement personnel. Because he is both a street cop and so astute a clinician, Dr. Rudofossi was able to straddle an imposing gulf and secure the trust of those he treated. This book is a rare piece of scholarship.” 

Three New York Police Department detectives are among the co-authors of the Rape Investigations Handbook; John Baeza; Alan Sandomir; and, John Savino.   According to the book description, “This work addresses specific investigative and forensic processes related to sex crimes for those who work in law enforcement, the defense community, or in the private sector. It is an unprecedented collaborative work — the first working manual for sex crime investigators, written by sex crime investigators and forensic scientists.  

Detective John Baeza started his career in law enforcement as a New York State Correction Officer working at the Sing-Sing and Otisville correctional facilities. He was employed by the New York Police Department for nearly 12 years. John Baeza began his police career in Harlem’s 32nd Precinct as a patrol officer. He was then assigned to the Manhattan North Tactical Narcotics Team where he performed undercover work for three years. John Baeza was promoted to Detective during his Narcotics assignment.

Detective Alan Sandomir was born and raised in New York City. He attended Cortland College in upstate New York where he received a dual Bachelor’s Degree in both Anthropology and Political Science. After college, Detective Alan Sandomir spent four years in the United States Army where he was involved in a classified intelligence collection operation in Eastern Europe during the height of the Cold War.  In 2001, Alan Sandomir created and initiated a program that allowed him to specialize in and investigate the trickle of incoming DNA based cases that was correctly forecasted to soon turn into an avalanche. As the DNA databanks began to churn out DNA cases Detective Sandomir and his partner, Detective Edward Tacchi, became the first DNA Detectives in the NYPD where they led both New York City and New York State in DNA arrests and indictments while working out of their Manhattan office.  

John Savino has been a member of the New York Police Department since 1982. His career has spanned all aspects of law enforcement, beginning with a short assignment as a uniformed police officer and quick advancement to the Narcotics Division. His investigative skills began developing while assigned to the Manhattan North Narcotics Division. This assignment also helped develop his ability to talk with people from all walks of life, as he worked in an “undercover” capacity buying narcotics in Manhattan.
